Actually, after reading more about Pompeo, I realized that I should have profiled him MUCH earlier than now, but better late than never…
Here, he was called “The Koch Bros. puppet in the war on children.”
And as noted here, that’s not surprising in the least, considering that he made his fortune off a Koch-backed company.
His only public policy experience is with a Koch-related outfit (same Think Progress link as above).
Also the Kochs were by far the biggest contributors to his 2010 U.S. House campaign (same Think Progress link as above).
Pompeo also hired an ex-Koch Bros. lobbyist as his chief of staff (here).
Oh, and he made the news recently when he wanted Edward Snowden off the bill at the South-by-Southwest conference here (ummm, SXSW is in Texas, and Pompeo allegedly represents a congressional district in Kansas…???).
